(March 6, 2021 from Gary Thomas) – The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway will hear racing engines for the first time in 2021 by hosting a “Test and Tune” on Saturday March 13th, taking place from Noon to 4pm.
Pit passes cost $25 for adults, $10 for minors ages four to 13 and $5 for infants/ toddlers up to age three.
Pit passes for the Test and Tune are available to pre-purchase via the Pit Pay Mobile Pit Pass App. To use Pit Pay, participants will download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play and create a profile. They can then purchase passes for Placerville Speedway events, signing all waivers electronically. At the track, they will simply proceed to the Pit Pay Priority Line, show their mobile pit pass, and get an armband.
Please note the grandstands are closed to the public during the Test and Tune. The pit area will open at 11am. For those that don’t have a smart phone you can still purchase pit passes the traditional way upon arrival to the speedway.
One week after that the Placerville Speedway is then slated to open its 56th season of competition on Saturday March 20th.
